Ladies… Do you remember those days of being a little girl and putting on your mom’s heels and watching her get ready?? We looked up to her mothers womanhood of glamour and beauty & and couldn’t wait to do the same when we grew up! As a kid I’d always raid my mom’s closet, going through her dresses, hats, and shoes, not that I was going anywhere and not that she didn’t get annoyed but I loved to dress up. And some things really don’t change. Because every time I visit my mothers house I always take a peek of what’s in her closet. I just can’t help myself. If it wasn’t for my moms closet I wouldn’t be the doll of fashion that I am today.
So how do you make an outfit? It really just happens by pairing things all together. You start with a for sure piece that you’ve already decided on such as the black skater girl dress in the second photo. And then accessories come into the picture such as a skull purse, a skull bandana, leather bracelets, leather jacket, distressed jewellery, red lipstick, voluminous messy hair, you name it! All of these things make an outfit. It’s important to decide on your theme of the day and add onto that idea. Be creative, see what goes together and really just have fun with it! After all, it is fashion. If you like it, wear it!
So this bottom piece may or may not be a scarf. Honestly i’ll truly never know but what would it matter especially when I have two different ways and possibly more to wear this scirf. (yes I made this up) I found this at the bay where apparently I live at and indulge in! It was located in a section of hanging skirts which encouraged me to try on this stunning navy blue and bedazzled bottom. After trying on the scarf or skirt and falling in love, especially with the price, a score of $30!! I came across the matching hat which further brought me to the conclusion that this could in fact be a circle scarf. This only inspires me to play up more of my clothing in creative ways and wear them without the basic conforming of clothing. At this point, I’m thinking why not wear a button down shirt backwards I mean what if that’s cute you never know until you try! Style tip: have fun and be creative with you clothing!!
This fabulous boutique in uptown Waterloo sells the most glamorous pieces of clothing you’ll find! Not only is it a store full of unique items but a lot of it is vintage. (Actual good vintage!) You’ll find gloves and hats from the 1920’s, gowns from the 60’s, and amazing $8 pants with a cigarette burn in it. Such an amazing variety of the most fashionable pieces! The Meow Boutique is a must see!
With prom around the corner it was time to find the perfect shoes. These but dazzled babies were purchased at Spring shoe store for $50 with a added bonus of 30% off! Wooh, sale! After looking and looking and slowly getting rid of options I finally found the perfect shoe to match my stunning rose gold prom dress. (that btw I can’t wait to post about once I do the big reveal) I was looking for crystals or something rose gold itself and of course something within budget! So? Style tip: When shopping it’s important to remember that you can satisfy your “expensive” taste and your wallet. It is tricky but it is possible. Seriously, I’m broke and will never spend more than what I think is worth but I do believe I have a gift for great finds.
These lovely black suede heels are my favourite find of the day. I originally had the idea to go to Le chateau for a browse at shoes, which by the way I was basically harassed by the stylists and consultants that work there. I’m literally just looking, DO NOT BRING ME SHOE SIZES!!! The shoes here are amazing but seriously, I’m broke and nowhere near willing to pay $100 (of my own money anyway 😉 on a single pair of shoes. So after feeling obligated to try on 3 different pairs (I’m sorry where actually did this guy get the idea that I wanted to try on shoes though, really.) I went down to the Bay, a shopping haven in my eyes! And looked at there shoes. Glorious but outrageous due to pricing if you’re lacking bank like myself and most people. Although, I did find the perfect pair! They were stunning leather heels with a cut out at the ankles. Ugh. But $175 isn’t gonna happen! At this point I was ready to give up on my shopping trip but I figured I’d try one last store and that was H&M. Boy oh boy, was I in luck. They had pink suede and black suede and leather heels, for $35!!! SCORE!!! and not only that but they were the exact same shoes I had seen at the Bay. The kind workers at H&M who kindly let you shop without any harassment reassured me that the quality was the same and that hey, if there $35, you’d be getting money’s worth even if it lasted you a year.
Style tip: shop smart, smart cheap & chic
